Monster Monday: Bob Layton's recreation of Amazing Adventures #12

No doubt many of you remember this famous cover by Gil Kane from 1972.

Amazing Adventures #12, featuring The Beast!  Who could resist buying such a cover?  Iron Man isn't looking too healthy there on the ground and the blurb: One Avenger Dead on Arrival! is enticing.

Here is Bob Layton's recreation of this cover.  As you can see, The Beast here looks more like he did in the first issue of X-Factor, the comic that Layton co-plotted and inked in 1986.  It appears this commission was done in 1985 and in a very classy move, Layton acknowledges Kane with his signature.  Check out Bob Layton's website for more cool stuff!  Nuff Said.
